 The Kalahari Resort in Sandusky, Ohio, opened its newly expanded convention center yesterday after a $22 million, 10-month renovation. The 120,000-square-foot addition brings the convention center's total square footage to 215,000. The space now accommodates 5,200 attendees and includes a new 38,000-square-foot ballroom, a 12,000-square-foot junior ballroom, 14 meeting rooms and 30,000 square feet of prefunction space.
